The Sotnik is the ultimate travel duffle and the only duffle you'll ever need. It's made with Chrome's 100% welded-waterproof technology, has a large cargo capacity with a huge opening, and it can be carried by hand or worn as a pack. It's part of their WWII-inspired Militia line. Chrome has made their original Militia bags to haul wetsuits and beer to and from the beach. All Militia bags feature a pocketless, 100% welded-waterproof main compartment that can hold ice-cold beer and keep your stuff dry in a downpour. As an indication of its size, the Sotnik Duffle fits about 3 6-packs of beer side by side in the waterproof compartment. A zippered compartment keeps wet/dry separate. Outside pockets with stainless-steel hardware for storing small stuff.
“Great for over night or weekend trips. Have loved chrome industries gear for a long time (this in now my 4th chrome bag) and this bag is a testimate to their design and build quality. The bag at its most compact is perfect for carry on luggage and even if it\'s a bit bigger i\'m yet to have any issues on a qantas flight. The main compartment is gigantic! They are not pulling your leg when they say 35-65litre capacity. It should be noted though that when you pack it to its full capacity you are reliant on the two plastic clip straps and not the big velcro flap. Didn\'t bother me but i wouldn\'t be comfortable checking it in as luggage with only the straps. Backpack functionality is handy. No where near as comfortable as my other chrome pack (bravo and niko pack) but it\'s primarily a duffle with the bonus of working ok as a pack. Sturdy construction and the material just feel strong so you know it\'s going to last a lifetime. Haven\'t tried out the waterproof lining inside the bag but am looking forward to taking it down to the beach and not having to worry about wet vs dry gear this summer!”
